|An Overview of Grover Cleveland's Second
Although he enjoyed popularity during his first term, Cleveland's policies alienated many and he lost his bid for reelection in 1889. Before leaving the White House, First Lady Frances Cleveland reportedly told the staff to "take care of the place, we'll be back." By 1892 the American public was ready to admit that Cleveland's policies had been the correct ones, and Frances Cleveland's bold statement was proven correct.
The only President to serve two non-consecutive terms, Grover Cleveland enjoyed greater popularity at the beginning of his second term than at any other time during his presidency. He had made no promises to anyone in order to become President again, so he was free to handle the country's problems as he saw fit.
